Dear friend of the Alliance,

Would you like to bring a smile to a child’s face who can’t leave his or her home
due to the COVID-19 pandemic?

With your donation, you can help one of the many children (and their families) who
are stuck at home, but are now feeling confused and overly concerned over the scary
images and messages they see and hear every day relating to the ongoing health crisis
that is wreaking havoc in our state.

Can you imagine what it must be like to be a child who doesn’t completely
understand what is going on and is being asked not to leave their home for their
safety? How about a parent or guardian who also having difficulties coming to grasp
with the onslaught of changes we must make to our everyday life… How do they set
their child at ease while retaining their own sanity?

Would you buy a toy to bring that smile to a child right here in Monmouth
County? You can be the little ray of sunshine they need right now and help them cope
with this situation knowing someone cares about them!
The Affordable Housing Alliance provides safe and dignified housing for many of the
essential employees that make our life a little easier during challenging times. Nurses,
social workers, restaurant staff, gas pump operators and childcare professionals, are
just some of the members of the over 600 families that live in AHA properties.
While there are issues with food, employment and housing facing every family, this
appeal is about the children. Over 300 are in AHA housing and we would like to
provide a toy or game to each and every one.

We’d like to give you the opportunity to help! Assist with the simple donation of a
new toy from WalMart, Amazon or other online retailers. We prefer new toys delivered
directly from the retailers so it’s safe and new. Gift cards are also welcomed!
Although this is a small effort, it can be HUGE to a child right here where we live.
